The University of New Haven opened the $35 million Bergami Center for Science, Technology, and Innovation in August of 2020 in West Haven, Conn. Designed by Svigals+Partners, the three-story, 45,500-sf facility provides sophisticated science and engineering labs, technology-enabled collaborative classrooms, a maker space, an atrium, video production studios, and an e-sports training and competition hub. LEED Gold sustainable design certification is being sought for the structure, which is expected to use 40 percent less energy than a conventional facility. Integrating natural and locally sourced construction materials, the Bergami Center features highly efficient mechanical infrastructure, advanced building controls, abundant natural light, and an underground stormwater retention system. The project team included general contractor Consigli Construction, structural engineer Michael Horton Associates, civil engineer Westcott and Mapes, MEP engineer BVH Integrated Services, and audiovisual engineer Acentech. Ground was broken on the interdisciplinary facility in October of 2018.
